    Human Rights Violations of North Korea

    INTRODUCTION North Korea is possibly the least accessible, and “the most brutal and repressive country in the world.” (Martin, 2006) Since its formation after World War II very little information has left the country. What has left are the defectors and the stories of horrible atrocities against humanity the government is bestowing upon its citizens. Classified as a democracy, it is just a mask hiding the Kim Dynasty’s totalitarian ways. With its ideology of “Juche,”

    Morality is not about, what we should not do, but about what we should do. It is about doing the right thing. It is about how we should live our lives.

  • Human Rights

    Human Rights

    If you had to give a definition of ‘human rights’, what would it be? We who use the English language are blessed with the words 'allowing' and 'permission' to refer to a freedom of action granted by another person or persons. This helps emphasize the clear distinction of a right as being a freedom of action a person claims for himself. The article The Falling man brings up a lot of topics about human rights.

    Human Rights

    Human rights were violated during the times of war. Bombings by the Americans resulted in death of many innocent people in Japanese cities. Japanese Canadians were being blamed for crimes they did not commit and had to suffer the consequences. Moreover, many innocent Jews were victimized in Europe by the Nazi regime. Therefore, this reveals that the violation of human rights should not be justified in times of war. In August of 1945, both Hiroshima

    An Analysis of Duties to Fulfill the Human Rights of the Poor

    Alan Gewirth justifies the existence of human rights in his “Duties to Fulfill the Human Rights of the Poor” by claiming that human action is the grounding to possessing rights. Essentially, Gewirth explains that what makes one human is the ability of “action.” And therefore, in order to “act” one must have certain essential rights—rights of well-being and freedom (Gewirth 222). Gewirth then attempts to claim that the humans themselves have a duty to make
